Raising money for
Cranleigh RDA Riding High
Paul Sayers, Associate Director with Grant Thornton : "This year to raise funds for Cranleigh RDA I have taken part in Ride London. 100 miles of cycling! My son Henry attends riding sessions with RDA at Casi's Farm. We had to wait 9 months to get our place but now we are one of the lucky ones. Henry loves attending, is gaining confidence, learning riding skills and making friendships. As a family we enjoy spending Saturday mornings at Casi's chewing the fat with other families. Saturday mornings now have a real purpose and energy"
Tim Adams, partner of Barlow Robbins in Guildford: "I am rapidly approaching my 60th birthday and cycling is the best form of exercise for me these days! I first got into cycling in 2011 when I completed the London to Paris event for the British Legion and then again on two further occasions. This was my third Ride London 100. I was delighted and honoured to support this fantastic local charity which relies totally on their own fundraising initiatives in order to continue to provide this much needed service."
The 2018 Prudential Ride London 100
Tim Adams and Paul Sayers both rode in this year's Prudential RideLondon cycle race on a very wet, windy and miserable Sunday at the end of July. They were among 26,000 competitors who competed starting and finishing in London with a gruelling course through the Surrey Hills. Both completed the course, Paul in a time of 7hrs 29mins and Tim in 7hrs 53mins. A fantastic achievement by both of them for which the Cranleigh RDA Group are exceedingly grateful.
The Cranleigh Riding for the Disabled Group is the second largest group in Surrey and provides regular riding for over 200 people, both children and adults, each year. Riding is very therapeutic to people with special needs to benefit their health and well being and to achieve their goals and just as importantly to have FUN. Our two cycle riders are raising money for the Group's Riding High Campaign, a massive fundraising initiative (circa £750,000) required to replace our aged and no longer fit for purpose stables. Although our new stables have now been built and we are back in operation, funds are still urgently needed in order to repay the short term loans that had to be taken out and which currently still exist.
